  2. The K number indicates it's UK origin. However, a quick Google for K119 doesn't reveal the missile name.

    That'll be a first stage K119A3 (Gridded Brambling) motor from the HVM K130A3 and K130A4.

    Not normally seen as it's all tucked up inside the launch tube.

    So yes, starstreak is correct.
